    Scalpel tire recommendations, front and rear???

    I have the orignal tires on my 2008 bike and wanted to see what others were riding on for their Scalpels. I ride in Upstate N.Y., mainly dry, hardpack conditions, with some rocks, roots and ridges (75% XC/25% racing). I have heard alot of good things about the Kendra small block 8, and and wanted to try a 2.35 up front (to lift up the front a little) and a 2.1 for the back. What will the approx. diameter of the front be in comparison to the rear? Thought about doing the 650b up front, but I am not convinced to spend the $300 to do it yet. Any thoughts?
